Largo: deeds, not words
when dealing with such monsters.
Next time, bring pork rinds.

Disturbing morning -
Piro gives us fan service.
Strangely alluring.

I'm guessing that our
noble guest artists would be
these folks? 'Fess up, guys.

[off topic]

As I searched the 'net
for Haiku, I found this site:
"Haiku Gen'rator"

I was int'rested:
How can Haiku be written
by a computer?

I pushed the button
labeled "New Haiku" and this
thing is what appeared:

"frightened mustang fries
tartly, apple trees laughing
fuming awkwardly"

wond'ring as I read,
If I spent all year could I
find any deep meaning?

I guess that's why we
humans write the poetry
and not computers.

Haiku Generator for anyone who wants to check out the site.

Monkeys type Shakespeare:
"Alas, poor Yorick, I knew
him HoratiX..." Damn!

No mercy and no
quarter: now he'll take his beer
intravenously!

(apologies to Basho)

No blossoms and no moon,
and he is drinking sake
all alone!

You are right, Phaedrus.
Supermegatokyo
Is what we have seen.

I can't help but think
Rent-a-Zilla was made by
Mad Doctor Nesbitt...

Largo's diatribe
Goes against his own nature:
Less talk, kick b00ty!

Edit:
Echo, you halfwit!
Haiku isn't all that hard...
Count the syllables!!!

A monsta! Up go
Largo's taunts, more and more; down
comes its tootsies!

(apologies to Busson)

A whale!
Down it goes, and more and more
up goes its tail!

a parting shot:

"A vail!" exclaim
the Hassidim; retorts the
whale, "Avail yourself!"

(apologies to Busson and to B. Kliban; sorry, couldn't resist!)

Squashing Largo
after taunting: right away,
a happy feeling!

(apologies to Busson)

Pressing Sushi;
After a while,
A lonely feeling

Contradiction lurks!
One-horned dragon snares Largo
with a dilemma.

His koan taxes
mind and flesh: "What is the sound
of one spine snapping?"

(apologies to Hakuin)

In clapping both hands, a sound is heard.
What is the sound of one hand?

Bad boo, Stoopid Boo!
See wut joo have done?
J00 crushed! Flattened man.

Posted by: Rincewind Jul 13 2001, 11:00 PM
the sound of half clap
is something like this: whoosh woosh
woosh woosh woosh woosh whoosh

"Welcome to the House of Puns" (apologies to Madness)

If one hand is clapped
And nobody is around
Does it make a sound?


Posted by: smurd Jul 13 2001, 12:37 PM
Largo's not escaped:
this foo's taunts are at an end,
temporarily.

(apologies to Shiki)

One canary escaped:
the spring day
is at its end.


Posted by: smurd Jul 13 2001, 12:58 PM
Largo talking back:
Yakitty yakitty yak;
giant feets attack.

Posted by: Phaedrus Jul 13 2001, 02:10 PM
Unfortunately,
in dragon-speak, "n33d ph0r b33r"
means "I am too tall".

[edit: threw out 3 unnecessary stanzas; they worked, but didn't really add anything]

This puts me in mind
of "O'Reilly at the Bar"
by Dan Hicks' Hot Licks:

"Whoever you are,
you pushed me too far; now I'm
gonna smash your face."

I quite solidly
agree with Phaedrus and co.
Because he forgot.

I am speaking about
Largo and how he forgot
to have some pork rinds

Always at ready
For when the time to summon
Rent-A-Zilla comes.

Tiny warrior

A thought just arrived.
This strip riffs on PSO;
Is Boo, then, a Mag?

Posted by: Phaedrus Jul 14 2001, 09:30 AM
Boo as Mag? Love it!
Imagine the consequences!
Just for example:

Should Largo ever
mature (unlikely event),
boo gets more ornate.

Let us check, shall we?
Bad news for Largo-sama -
Boo's even smaller!
